Believe it or not, "ice" climbs form in the Flatirons. They tend to provide a strange experience as they frequently feel serious and committing despite their proximity to Boulder. Protection tends to be scarce as does ice that provides good sticks, however the angle of the routes tends to compensate for the thickness and quality of the ice. The routes on the Flatirons seem to come in a few days after a big dump of snow during cold weather.
All of the documented routes are in the northern Flatirons, so park at Chataqua.
